my first grey hair weave

Please insert my Trey Songz “YUP” impersonation here. Wait did you hear me? [laughs]

Someone has a grey-haired weave, SAY WORD! Duh, that someone is me, but I really wish my words could scream at y’all (scroll to the bottom of this post for the video).


Hold on, let me find a gif right quick!


This is me quietly screaming at your computer screen!

If you follow me on Instagram then you just might remember an extremely cute picture I posted umpteen weeks ago of myself with uber-long wildly luscious grey-haired tresses. They were perfectly curled and styled to perfection and I was ultimately pleased. But good God, then it got crazy dumb hot so I never showcased those grey-haired tresses again. Come September, watch out for some epic real-life hair flips!

BUT, back to the point, right?

Do you know how hard it has been trying to find grey hair to match my head of grey?

This has literally been years in the making. I mean YEARS! So many companies offer grey hair but it either looks like this…



Or this…

That time Wendy Williams sent me a grey-haired wig?

I am so grateful to my friend and celebrity hair stylist, Cynthia Alvarez. She’s responsible for some of the flyest celebrity hair in Hollywood including Keke Palmer, Anika Noni Rose, Adrienne Bailon, Alicia KeysJasmine Sullivan…I could go on but you get my point, yes? Great!

Cynthia not only connected me with a hair company willing to do a custom dye but she also crafted one of her infamous wigs…just for me!

Check out the video below and find out where I got the hair from and what this whole process looked like!

    HelloTy, I have been grey for about a year.I looked dated with my grey hair till looked on youtube for inspiration nd I found you. Thank you’re making me trendy again. Now you,’ve done it again. I have looked at the hair factory. My grey is similar to your darker in th back and whiter at the front. I want to ask you what colours did they use and much hair. I consider myself the UK grey connection.
    Kind regard
    Patricia Gray
